Justin Aversano, a New York-based photographer and artist, is set to launch his latest NFT project, Smoke and Mirrors. This project is a black and white portrait series that takes a deep dive into the tarot, using the lens of photography to convey the archetypes in the cards from the real world. The result is a stunning art book and tarot deck that is a journey across the Major and Minor Arcana’s, from The Fool to The World and all the Suits in between: Staffs, Swords, Cups, Coins.
What sets Smoke and Mirrors apart from other tarot decks is that every character in the story has a short haiku that expresses the meaning of each card’s representation. This feature adds a unique layer of depth to the project, making it not only visually captivating but also intellectually stimulating. The multimedia design elements throughout the length of the book bring the Smoke and Mirrors concept to life in the palm of your hands.
In addition to the digital art book and tarot deck, minters will also qualify to claim a physical book. The physical book is bound in Italian cloth with embroidery and hot foil, and its dimensions are 964 x 13 inches. The book has a total of 186 pages, with silver gilded edges, and is bound in a sewn hardback format. The Polaroid tarot deck comes in a silver box, adding to the overall aesthetic appeal of the project.
The Smoke and Mirrors project is a unique and innovative exploration of the tarot, combining photography, poetry, and design to create a one-of-a-kind experience. With a limited supply of only 1000, the Smoke and Mirrors NFT project is sure to be highly sought after by collectors and tarot enthusiasts alike.

Justin Aversano is a trailblazer
This is not Justin Aversano’s first foray into the world of NFTs. His previous project, Trailblazing Twin Flames, was a series of stunning black and white portraits that explored the concept of soulmates and twin flames. The project featured 111 unique NFTs, each with its own twin flame pairing, and included a physical art book that showcased the portraits and told the stories behind each pair. The project was a huge success, with all NFTs selling out within hours of release. Aversano’s innovative use of photography and storytelling in Trailblazing Twin Flames set the stage for his latest project, Smoke and Mirrors, and has solidified his place as one of the most exciting artists working in the NFT space today.
